Well, Ive got 9900mi on my cx5, and next oil change it will be new tire time.

I have had:

Wrg3 suv: horrible, Nokian is out.
Firestone destination le2: no wet traction, out.
General altimax rt43: not bad, im considering them.

Tires I am interested in:

Continental TrueContact Tour
Michelin Premier LTX, but I fear the bad tread life rating on tirerack.

What other recommendations or reviews are there from the forum? I value rain, snow, ice traction, handling, and a quiet ride, then treadlife. All in that order, but not much spread.

Get the Continentals. Stay away from the Michelins. Most people are not completely happy with them. I had problems with treadwear and cracking of the Michelin. Went to Continental True Contacts and they are great. Quiet, good traction and last a lot longer. Currently using them on Hyundai SantaFe and Tucson.

I just put Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady tires on my car not that long ago and couldn't be happier.

Very lucky. I've seen way to many out of round GY Assurances on my own cars, and customer cars. I don't think I would touch GY for a long time unless they change dramatically. Goodyear and Firestone/Bridgestone are my no buy list.
My vote.
Cooper Discover SRX
Or the General Tire Altimax RT43.

That's still a bit of tread. Sounds more like you want to replace just to replace and not out of need.

No, by 15k miles (next oil change) they will be around 3/32, unless they begin wearing slower. They went from 11/32 to 6 in 9900mi. So Ill need to change them in 2-3mo. Just gathering data, today.

Why do you dislike the Nokians? I have them on one of mine vehicles and love those tires. Wear a little quick otherwise they are great tires imo.

I’ll be getting the Vredestein Quatrac 5’s once my house finally sells, if I like them on my 300 I’ll get a set for the van as well.

Loud, lasted only 20k mi, poor traction, very bad hydroplaning, impossible to balance well.

I have a Mazda 3 and have identified these as the next possible replacement. VREDESTEIN QUATRAC 5. They are available in your size at TireRack. Very good ratings.
